In addition to our regular adult fitness classes, we offer various workshops each season depending on the needs of our members. Registration is required, which ensures smaller group sizes, and of course encourages accountability on your part! A nominal fee is also required for most of the workshops, as indicated below. Call or visit your YMCA Location for details on dates and cost for each workshop.
